Maestro Cares Foundation Summer Enrichment Program
This program is offered to the children at our different projects, which provides them with an opportunity to further develop their education or some particular trait during the summer.
Ricardo is our first Summer Enrichment Program beneficiary from our project in Barranquilla, Colombia. He spent more than a month in Chicago learning English and exploring the city. During his time there, Ricardo experienced all the beauty that the city has to offer with the Maestro Cares team and his host family.
Ricardo says the experience was "a dream come true." His favorite memories from the trip are spending time with his host family and attending the Gold Cup Finals between USA and Mexico.
Though Ricardo has now returned to Barranquilla, Colombia, he hopes to continue pursuing his studies in psychology with the end goal of someday returning to the United States to work. We can't wait to see what the future holds for Ricardo!
